November 24, 1912 – July 31, 1986

Theodore Shaw „Teddy” Wilson was an American jazz pianist. Described by critic Scott Yanow as „the definitive swing pianist”, Wilson’s sophisticated and elegant style was featured on the records of many of the biggest names in jazz including Louis Armstrong, Lena Horne, Benny Goodman, Billie Holiday, and Ella Fitzgerald. With Goodman, he was perhaps the first well-known black musician to play publicly in a racially integrated group.
